God sent His Son for everyone! Because of Jesus, we’re freed to love God and love others. So you can share the good news about Jesus with anyone you meet. That might be through your words or through showing God’s love in your actions. Pray that God will show you when and how to share the good news about Jesus with your words and through giving God’s love to others.
REMEMBER THIS:
"God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son.
Anyone who believes in him will not die but will have eternal life."

From Parent Cue:

TRADITIONS CREATE MEMORIES
By Kendra Fleming



One of my favorite Christmas traditions is to bake a birthday cake for Jesus on Christmas Eve and decorate it with the kids. I usually try to make a multi-layer round cake, and when the kids were young I would dye the layers red and green. The taller the better! The kids would decorate it with all kinds of Christmas candy and it was usually a delicious and glorious mess.
The kids have gotten older and now we make fancier, more grown up cakes. They are not as messy, still delicious, but somehow a little less glorious. There is just something about little fingerprints in the frosting that makes it better. This cake is usually the centerpiece of our family Christmas desserts. It’s a great reminder that the whole reason we are together is to celebrate HIS birthday . . .

This Sunday is our last day for the fundraiser!
SBC Kids is partnering with Five To Ten––a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping churches fundraise through the collection of your recently replaced, personal electronic devices.  We’re hosting a device collection from December 2 - December 16, raising funds for children’s camp.  We want to make camp accessible for all kids!
For this fundraiser, we will take your used devices and receive the trade-in value of your donation.  If you think you might have some personal electronics to donate, start looking around the house.  We will help you find a new purpose for that old device!  Please know, we will accept smartphones, laptops, tablets and gaming systems.  Many of us have these old devices tucked away in a drawer somewhere.  Consider donating your device as you upgrade to newer ones for Christmas and give a child the opportunity to go to camp
You can learn more about Five To Ten by visiting www.fivetoten.org/donate

WHAT'S ON YOUR CHRISTMAS LIST?

By Mike Tiemann
You probably have lots of vivid memories that come to mind when you remember celebrating Christmas as a kid.
  • Bundling up in the car to look at the neighbors’ lights.
  • Decorating the tree while listening to Bing Crosby and Nat King Cole.
  • Making Christmas sugar cookies with Grandma . . . and leaving enough icing so you can lick the bowl.
  • Drinking hot cocoa (with marshmallows!) as you watch the snow fall.
  • Singing “Silent Night” at church . . . while your candle dripped hot wax onto your fingers.
  • Examining each wrapped gift to try to figure out who it was for . . . and what might be inside!
As kids, we waited for the big day to arrive . . . but our concerns were very practical. We couldn’t WAIT to see what gifts we would receive! We spent the month of December dreaming of toys, candy, and video games—and, yes, making lists of the things we wanted most. As parents, we now have the privilege of experiencing Christmas with our own kids. We also have the opportunity to help them connect the joy and excitement of the season with the great love God has shown to us . . .
